Stupidest logic I have ever seen.
AMD didn't make up the version numbers 1.1 to 1.4. This was started by Anan in there review of the 7790, if I remember correctly. From then when they tweaked the architecture, people just put next number for easier differentiating.
So all the version numbers are a lie. AnanEdited by Myst-san - 6/12/15 at 4:29am
